VIENNA, July 15 /ITAR-TASS/. Chairperson-in-Office of the Organisation of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Didier Burkhalter considers a possibility of extending the term of a monitoring mission’s work for another six months upon Ukraine’s request.
On Monday a statement to the issue was circulated after his phone conversations with Russian and Ukrainian Foreign Ministers Sergei Lavrov and Pavel Klimkin.
“Upon receiving a formal request from the Ukrainian government, the OSCE chairman is holding consultations on extending the mandate of a monitoring mission for another six months after September 20, 2014,” the statement reads.
He said the relevant decision could be adopted by the end of July.
Besides, Burkhalter called on the Ukrainian authorities to reset as soon as possible an inclusive dialogue with all peaceful citizens, dubbing this step as the cornerstone in [Ukraine’s President Pyotr] Poroshenko’s peaceful plan.
